NIKE FINALLY CAVES INTO PUBLIC PRESSURE & DROPS ASAP BARI FROM THE TEAM. 🏃🏃
Bari’s VLONE clothing brand teamed up with Nike last year to produce exclusive versions of the Air Force 1 sneakers for ComplexCon. The rare shoes garnered a bid of $94,700 (R126, 357) on eBay. More Nike and VLONE collaborations were in the works, but those have obviously come to a screeching halt.
Nike is doing everything they can to distance themselves from A$AP Bari. The company reportedly cut ties with the A$AP Mob co-founder in light of a disturbing video showing Bari sexual assaulting an unknown woman.
In the video, a naked woman is seen trying to escape a perilous situation in a hotel room. Bari is heard shouting “You fucked my assistant, now you’re going to suck my dick.”
Bari has issued a statement to Billboard adamantly denying there was an assault or that he was held by U.K. authorities. He added that the issue was “amicably” resolved.
“A misleading video clip featuring adult content and activity has been released to the public without my knowledge or consent,” Bari said. “Comments about myself or anyone being detained or arrested are false. We have resolved this issue amicably among all parties as adults. We were friends before this and will remain friends afterwards.
“Being raised by strong women who taught me to respect everyone, I’m disappointed in the situation as well as myself and will reflect on the situation appropriately,” he added.
